A study published in the peer-reviewed journal, American Psychologist, found that short-term dieting in fact does not lead to improvements in weight and health for the most people. Moreover, it has been found in studies that dieting among healthy people, if done to stay healthy, can actually be harmful.
1. Eat slowly and chew well.
A study found that people who eat fast, also gain weight faster than those who eat slowly. Eating slowly and chewing well will make you feel full, even when you have eaten less. To get into the habit of eating slowly, you can start by counting how many times you chew each bite, and gradually increasing the count if you feel you are not chewing enough.
